FreeBSD : mantis -- 'view_filters_page.php' XSS vulnerability (6e3b12e2-6ce3-11da-b90c-000e0c2e438a)

This script is Copyright (C) 2006-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.

Description :

r0t reports :

Mantis contains a flaw that allows a remote cross site scripting
attack. This flaw exists because input passed to 'target_field'
parameter in 'view_filters_page.php' isn't properly sanitised before
being returned to the user. This could allow a user to create a
specially crafted URL that would execute arbitrary code in a user's
browser within the trust relationship between the browser and the
server, leading to a loss of integrity.
